What’s the Latest on North Korea?

What’s happening in North Korea?

President Donald Trump and Kim Jong Un continue to threaten each other; meanwhile, their respective militaries are gearing up. The U.S. conducted a joint military exercise with South Korea on Tuesday, sending two American combat bombers to fly over the Korean peninsula alongside two South Korean fighter jets. North Korea has done its homework with six nuclear tests as well as two missiles launched over Japan.

Are we preparing for war?  

It’s not looking good. White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders confirmed on Friday that North Korea is an “issue,” while Trump tweeted ominously over the weekend about the hermit regime, saying that diplomacy hasn’t helped the North Korea situation and “only one thing will work.”

Glenn’s take:

We’re so used to watching Trump and Kim spar back and forth that “it’s easy to miss just how close to war we get every single day,” Glenn said. But don’t be fooled by how “routine” it feels. North Korea is a threat.

GLENN: Strategic bombers were flying over South Korea yesterday. Two HEP B1 lancers flanked by Japanese and South Korean fire jets buzzed North Korea in yet another show of force yesterday. Perhaps the weirdest thing about all of this is how routine all of this is beginning to feel.

This wasn't an elaborate air show, or even a recon mission to take pictures. This was a mission to deter against nuclear war.

Are we even following this anymore? The tough talk and the saber rattling between Kim Jong-un and President Trump have become so common, it's easy to miss just how close to war we literally get every single day.

Yesterday, take this, for example. It was the 72nd anniversary of the founding of North Korea's whirling workers HEP party. Kim Jong-un typically uses these holidays to have, you know, those big, you know, parades where, hey, look at all of our cool missiles. And, look, we can get everybody to wear a hat. And it will spell out something like, happy anniversary to us. But he also uses it for nuclear missile tests. And the last threat we heard was a possible hydrogen bomb test over the Pacific.

Now, Trump has set the stage just last week when he said, we're at the calm before the storm.

And everybody began to wonder, what does that mean, Mr. President?

Friday, the press secretary, Sarah Huckabee Sanders, she confirmed that there were world issues. And that world issue, namely, was North Korea. Over the weekend, Trump doubled down and gave an ominous tweet. He said, you know, democracy hadn't worked for 25 years. And that, quote, only one thing will work.

So now, early yesterday morning, he called for a meeting with the Defense Secretary Mattis and Secretary of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. And they discussed, quote, a range of options to respond militarily to North Korea aggression.

Now, they've had these planning sessions 100 times since the crisis began.

Why did they pick Tuesday morning for another one? And then just a few hours later, B1 HEP bombers and Japanese and South Korean fighter jets are flying over the Korean peninsula.

Was it a show of force, or are we getting close to waiting for an attack order?

The threat of war with North Korea is greater than it has been in 50 years. And Kim Jong-un apparently got the message yesterday and backed down.

Will he continue to back down? Next time.

Right vs. Left: The Time for Compromise Is OVER | Jesse Kelly | Ep 146

The Left worked for decades to get control, and now they have it: “Every cultural pillar has been infected and taken over,” Jesse Kelly warns Glenn. So, it’s time to get out of the stands and onto the field. On this episode of "The Glenn Beck Podcast," the host of the nationally syndicated "Jesse Kelly Show" joins with a blunt message for the Right: The time for compromise is gone. This system that’s raising young people who hate America can’t be salvaged, and while taking back Congress in 2022 would be nice, LOCAL victories are what really matter. But this won’t be a quick fight. Thankfully, Jesse has some solutions, and they involve Play-Doh …

Where are our STANDARDS, America?

Since when are we the people that throw our hands up and accept the new normal?

We're the people, that despite all odds, we took it on. We didn't settle for less. And that's what they're telling you to do now, settle for less.

No. That's not who we are. Why would we be willing to sit around and wait for the government to fix it?

Don't lower your standards. That's un-American. We don't lower our standards. We raise standards. And that is our legacy.

Elon Musk CALLED OUT for…chocolate milk?

You can milk anything with nipples, as we discovered in the documentary Meet the Parents. Maybe someone should tell Elon Musk if he's really serious about the environment, he should try oat milk, almond milk, heck — there's even banana milk. It would at least keep some of the lefty trolls at bay.

Biden’s border bloodbath: The deadly crisis EXPOSED

Corruption, greed, and death. This is what the Left’s border policy is REALLY about, not the humanitarian effort they claim it is.

On tonight's episode of "Glenn TV," Glenn Beck exposes the groups benefitting from the border chaos under the Biden administration. A leftist money supply flows to NGOs on the border that are now taking the roles that the government should be filling with immigration and helping immigrants to flood into the U.S. Glenn asks: Why is the U.N. funding the flow of migrants to our border and subverting Congress? Why are former Biden staffers working for “non-profits” that are now getting exclusive, HIGHLY irregular multimillion-dollar border contracts? Worse than that, the consequences of Biden’s border policy have now turned deadly. National Guard members at the border are dying, fentanyl from China pours across the border, and terrorists have found an easy path to enter our country.

Finally, Glenn asks Texas Rep. Chip Roy if it’s time to impeach DHS Secretary Mayorkas for his negligence that is costing American lives.
